Steph doing this without really any help offensively against the same defense that swept Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will stir up an all-time narrative maelstrom that will reverberate well into the summer. – 10:41 AM:

More on this storyline:

Patty Mills, Brooklyn (player option): $ 7,181,657. Patty Mills has one of the league’s most interesting player-option decisions; his option (for $ 6.18 million) and his BORD $ value are almost identical. While it seems likely he’ll be back in a Brooklyn uniform in either event, he’d be eligible for a raise to $ 7.4 million if he opts out and then re-signs. -via The Athletic / June 13, 2022:

choc: At this point in your career do you even care about the narrative? I feel like you’ve kind of embraced being the bad guy and enjoy it now. Kevin Durant: Im kinda jaded with all this, I thought your play in the court dictates the narrative but I did not realize that u have to sell your play to the media as well as your personality for a narrative to really hit -via Twitter @ KDTrey5: / June 13, 2022:

jake: So would you consider yourself a leader ?? Kevin Durant: I’m an employee and one of the guys on the team. Some moments I’m out in front, some moments I’m not. The main message comes from the coach imo. -via: Twitter @ KDTrey5: / June 13, 2022:
